As a follow up to our conversation about mind mapping and Short Paper 1, I wanted to post the recent article, "11 Free Mind Mapping Applications & Web Services". For those of you who prefer working and thinking with the aid of a computer (and for whom the very thought of drawing ideas on a piece of paper sends a shiver down your spine), these digital mind mapping programs will offer you the same service without the reliance on the material realm. Another great online resource is XMind. You can download the software for free onto your computer and design some pretty amazing conceptual maps using traditional mapping techniques, outlines, lists, notes, and "fish" diagrams. Now, go forth and map!
